STOP PRESS: Apter Development create a new approach to enhancing inter and intra organisational alignment and collaboration (September 2016)

Structured Alignment Building (SAB) is a new approach created by Apter Development to deepen the capacity for different stakeholder groups to work together effectively. 

Increasingly working arrangements need to be built that ensure effective collaboration between parties which simultaneously may also be in competition or even conflict with each other.

These might include:joint ventures; cross-business and cross-department change projects; effective partnership arrangements; and even situations where competitors are drawn together in pursuit of mutual self-interest.

The potential for conflict and disharmony in such relationships is significant – sometimes this is overt and escalates into crisis, more of often it remains below-the-surface causing poor decision making, ineffective implementation, and a waste of time, effort and investment.

We believe Structured Alignment Building, which blends our high-end facilitation approach with skills and techniques developed as accredited mediators with Civil Mediation Council, offers a powerful way of reducing the huge costs of hidden, unresolved and ongoing conflict.

For further insights into the rationale for this approach read Steve’s blog, or for further details about how this might work for you – please contact us.


STOP PRESS: Adventurous Leadership – Memories of Leadership Development at The Kasbah du Toubkal

It was good to see that some of our senior leadership / top team work at the Kasbah du Toubkal was featured in their recent globally distributed ‘house magazine’. The Kasbah is one our favourite places to work; providing an absolutely unique and inspirational environment in which individuals and teams can establish the basis for significant mindset and behavioural change as well as strategic innovation.

Working with great companies, like Boots and SABMiller, we have been visiting and running programmes there since the year 2000. The article highlights just why this place works so well. Read more about our work at this amazing place (page 10 and 11).
